Beginning this year, all Turn 3 parking for Sunday race day oval events at IMS — the Indianapolis 500 and Crown Royal presents the “Your Hero’s Name Here” 400 at the Brickyard — will be pre-paid, with entry by parking pass only.

Free parking still remains outside the oval for fans attending all IMS events in 2013, with access to lots from both eastbound and westbound 30th Street.

The recommended gate entry point for pre-paid race day Turn 3 infield parking pass holders is through Gate 2 (Tunnel 2) off of 16th Street.

All fans parking in IMS lots should follow the IMS Know Your Zone parking program designed to help Speedway guests identify the best driving routes to parking lots near their respective seating locations.

“All Roads Lead to Indy” driving routes have been created by the Indiana State Police and match Know Your Zone parking sectors at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
